In 2003, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) implemented mandatory standards limiting duty hours for medical residents in accredited United States Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs. Such restrictions were put into place to protect the safety of patients and residents.
This study focuses on the effects of the duty hour limits imposed by the ACGME in 2003 on surgical residents. Specifically, this study explores the perceptions of surgical residents of issues related to quality of life, continuity of care, quality of life, and quality of education through a Veterans Affairs (VA) Learners' Perceptions Survey at a national level.
In this study, the majority of surgical residents indicated satisfaction with the impact of the ACGME duty hour restrictions on quality of care (73.9%), continuity of relationship with patients (78.2%), balance of personal and professional life (79.1%), and enhancement of clinical knowledge and skills (84.7%).
